Abstract:

The purpose of the Software Engineering Institutes Ada Embedded Systems Testbed AEST Project is to investigate some of the critical issues in using Ada for real-time embedded applications, particularly the extent and quality of the runtime support facility provided by Ada implementations. The projects objective has been to generate new information about using Ada in real-time embedded systems. This information is in the form of benchmark test results, higher level experiment results, and lessons learned in designing and implementing real-time applications in Ada. This technical report provides an overview of the results producted in the first year of the project through 30 September 1987. Details of these results are contained in other referenced technical reports. The investigative approach of the AEST. Project promotes three stages in evaluating real-time embedded systems benchmarking experimentation and prototyping and designing, coding, and testing an application. The project testbed is designed to support the process of building embedded systems applications using various Ada environments and development tools. In this way, software engineers at the Software Engineering Institute can learn more about using Ada in real-time embedded systems and can disseminate that information to the mission-critical computer resource MCCR community.
